> Mike I'd have to say that's a "double" bug, then.  Shutting Myth and rebooting your system from the mechanism that Myth itself provides, should work as a "clean" exit.  Remember, once again, most of us only have remotes to interact with Myth with, so how would one propose restarting or shutting down (which I do every night, it runs off an SSD and the cold boot up time is negliable and sleep does not play well with it) the frontend otherwise?  The second side of this is the fact (as stated in the ticket) that MythMusic is saving playlists on frontend exit instead of on change, which seems rather backwards.
